If you’re a 2013 Rogue owner looking for some help with your late-deploying airbags, don’t count on the government. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is closing their investigation.
“Safety regulators specifically looked at the airbag inflators, electrical wiring harnesses, connectors and the systems behind how the airbags deploy. Nissan responds it doesn’t believe there is a problem, and investigations of the Rogue SUVs determined the airbags deploy as intended.”
The investigation was opened in January 2015 after owners complained their airbags deployed late (or sometimes not at all). NHTSA says the complaints were “unusual,” and will continue to monitor the situation. If you have one now is a great time to share your concern.
